Jade Browser

Jade Browser build status

Middleware for express/connect to expose jade templates to the web browser. It provides a few additional features like express-like render function with partial handling.

var express = require('express')
  , jade_browser = require('jade-browser')
  , app = express.createServer();

app.use(jade_browser(url_endpoint, template_dir, options));

or for Express.js v3.x:

var express = require('express')
  , jade_browser = require('jade-browser')
  , app = express();

app.use(jade_browser(url_endpoint, template_dir, options));

Installation

$ npm install jade-browser

Features

  • Jade templates are served as compiled functions.
    • removes browser compatibility issues
    • increases speed of template execution
    • reduces file transfer size
  • ability to minify output
  • option to attach cache control
  • provides helpers for handling rendering/partials just like express.
  • relative path handling even from within partials.
  • ability to completely namespace to avoid any naming collisions on the browser.
  • partials inherit parent locals

Usage

In Node.js

As middleware jade-browser is simple to use.

var express = require('express')
  , jade_browser = require('jade-browser')
  , app = express.createServer();

app.use(jade_browser('/js/templates.js', '**', options));

Params

  • filename The filename of the resulting compiled templates file
  • patterns A single string or array of patterns used to glob for template files
  • options Options object, see below (optional)

Options

  • root The root of the views (default: __dirname)
  • namespace Namespace for the browser (default: 'jade')
  • minify Minifies the output (default: false)
  • maxAge Time in seconds to cache the results (default: 86400)
  • noCache Recompiles the output on every request (default: false)

Browser

jade.render('path/to/template', { values: for_template });

For direct access (for templates that have no need for partials).

jade.templates['path/to/template.jade'](locals);

Note: With render '.jade' extension is not required. Relative paths can be used in templates and in render function.

jade.render('path/../to/../test');

Credits

Large amounts of this code is inspired by TJ. Parts of express-expose and internal parts of express are recycled to make this happen. Contibuting docs part is taken from Mongoosastic.

Contributing

Pull requests are always welcome as long as an accompanying test case is associated.

This project is configured to use git flow and the following conventions are used:

  • dev - represents current active development and can possibly be unstable.

  • master - pristine copy of repository, represents the currently stable release found in the npm index.

  • feature/** - represents a new feature being worked on

If you wish to contribute, the only requirement is to:

  • branch a new feature branch from develop (if you're working on an issue, prefix it with the issue number)
  • make the changes, with accompanying test cases
  • issue a pull request against develop branch

Although I use git flow and prefix feature branches with "feature/" I don't require this for pull requests... all I care is that the feature branch name makes sense.

Pulls requests against master or pull requests branched from master will be rejected.

Examples

Examples of good branch names:

  • 12-amd-support
  • feature/12-amd-support

Running Tests

In order to run the tests which are in test folder, you will need:

  • Node.js
  • NPM

With those installed, running npm install and ''npm test'' will run the tests.
